Skaņu Mežs festival – October 14

In 2017, Skaņu Mežs festival for adventurous music marks its 15th anniversary. It is considered to be the main experimental music festival in the Baltic states. The festival will take place at the music house “Daile” on October 13th and 14th with an opening free entry event on October 6 at the art museum Riga Bourse. This ticket ensures entrance to the concert evening of October 14.

After a lengthy break, noise music will return to the festival – on October 14, the legendary Masami Akita a.k.a. Merzbow will perform in duo with Hungarian drummer Balázs Pándi, who is known for his work with quite a diverse crowd of musicians, including Venetian Snares, Wadada Leo Smith and To Live and Shave in L.A. Merzbow has been characterized as a „noise-electronics eminence” by Pitchfork and „the highpoint of noise music” by The Guardian.

The festival’s exploration of forward-thinking hip-hop will be continued by Moor Mother - the viscerally charged output of Philadelphia based interdisciplinary artist, Camae Ayewa. Her music is often harsh and strange, projecting both the cathartic anger of punk and the expansive improvisatory spirit of Sun Ra. Using a variety of machines, field recordings, and analog noisemakers, Ayewa constructs fractured, cacophonous waves for her words of punishing pertinence to ride.

A solo performance will be given by Roscoe Mitchell (1940), renowned musician, composer, and innovator, who began his career in the spirited 1960s of Chicago, Illinois. His role in the resurrection of long neglected woodwind instruments of extreme register, his innovation as a solo woodwind performer, his and his reassertion of the composer into what has traditionally been an improvisational form have placed him at the forefront of contemporary music for over four decades. Mitchell is a founding member of the world renowned Art Ensemble of Chicago and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. „Mr. Mitchell has been a leader in experimental music for over half a century,” write The New York Times. David Gross writes the following: „Even the most cursory book about the history of post-war jazz has to deal with Mitchell's work.”

Rolands Kronlaks’ work „Akusmātika”, a multi-channel piece of electronic music, will be premiered at the beginning of the evening.

The rhythmic music programme of this evening will consist of performances by Oliver Ho’s dark techno project Broken English Club and dub techno legends Porter Ricks, who have returned in 2017 with their first album in 18 years.

With Broken English Club, Oliver Ho, also known as Raudive, delivers monotone vocals and shards of live instrumentation over stuttering beats and bleak synths. The blank-stared, pin-pointfocused electronics and layers of noise betray no/wave and post punk influences, dragging together industrial experimentation and pitch-black techno. His works have been published by Jealous God, Cititrax and L.I.E.S.

Porter Ricks is the sound project of Thomas Köner and Andy Mellwig, which, in the words of media Resident Advisor, „helped define dub techno”. Their legendary releases on Chain Reaction (1996) and Mille Plateaux (1997) were recently complemented by Anguilla Electrica, a new LP on Tresor Records. Köner has been working extensively as a sound designer and artist – exhibiting at among other places the Centre Georges Pompidou and The Louvre. Mellwig’s other projects include collaborations with Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine and Pete Kember of Spacemen 3. Pitchfork, rating their new album with an 8.0  write: „Mellwig and Köner love techno too much to change it, just as they love techno too much to not to.”

Forming a certain „idyll before the storm”, the duo of harpist Mary Lattimore and guitarist/keyboard player Jeff Zeigler will take the stage right before the extreme noise performance of Merzbow. The duo makes music that is warm but ominous, a strangely organic mixture of conventionally beautiful sounds filtered through outsider sensibilities.

Agata Meļņikova’s ambient music project Sign Libra will conclude the concert night.

Skaņu Mežs festival is supported by the Ministry of Culture of Latvia, State Culture Capital Foundation, the Municipality of Riga, Trust for Mutual Understanding, Kulturkontakt Nord, Goethe-institut Lettland, as well as iRobot, Valmiermuiža and Red Bull Music Academy. Skaņu Mežs is also a member of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, supported by the „Creative Europe” program of the European Union, and I.C.A.S., an international network of festivals, devoted to adventurous sound.
